I’m sorry, Gawker. You have had some lovely moments, but the Internet doesn’t need you anymore. Same thing goes for you, TMZ. And you, PerezHilton. (Actually, the Internet never really needed you.) And every other half-catty, half-fawning media monument to celebrity gossip. Whatever void in popular culture into which you were heaping your 1,000-word posts and two-page layouts dedicated to showing how celebrities are “just like us” has been filled, permanently and perfectly, by this: Planethiltron.com.
I am not overstating a fact when I say that the best of this site is by far more elegant and nuanced and gracefully to-the-point than anything I’ve seen in any other celebrity-obsessed publication, broadcast or work of art. (Nice try, Jeffrey Koons!) Nice work, Planethiltron. And everyone else, your work here is done.
